Might be a macro virus - maybe a macro is running automatically when they are started, that closes the application.

Maybe it would be a good idea to scan for viruses with up-to-date antivirus software.

You don't say which version of Office you are using, and I'm not sure how to get rid of macros in Office. Maybe someone else on here can help with that.

I'd suggest you don't take any chances & do the following to rule out a virus possibility:

Even if you have upto date antivirus software installed, it would be worth your while to also run online scans on at least TWO of these sites:

Is the office program a genuine copy? If so did you download service pack 1. If so that causes office to close on its own

Hope this helps

Sorry if it is not a genuine copy service pack 1 causes the program to close.

May not be a virus problem after all - but no harm done.

Have a look at these (assuming you're using Office 2000) :
